Nothing is better than the Longview, TX, skyline lighting up the fireworks on Independence Day, right? Wrong. Coming up even sooner than that is Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake on June 30 and seeing these aircrafts perform is just as exciting. Bring the family and watch in awe as these nationally-rated performers rumble the waters of Cedar Creek Lake. While honoring both past and present military personnel, this is bound to be one action-packed night that the whole family will remember for years to come.
2018 Airshow Lineup
The 2018 lineup for Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake is very impressive with the featured air craft being the Mig-17. Flown by Greg Howell, you’ll be able to feel your body shake as the afterburner lights up. You’ll also see Richard Kelley fly the Yakovlev Yak-52, which is a Soviet primary trainer aircraft that first flew in 1976. Then Kevin Miller will pilot the Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog. This was actually the first all-metal fixed-wing aircraft ordered for and by the U.S. Army. These guys, plus others, are ready to put on one of their greatest performances, and they’re bound to almost literally blow you away.
